I like these bizarrely shaped garden chairs made by German artist Kai Linke. The Frankfurt-based artist used mirrored monoblock plastic chairs and manipulated photography to create the multi-mutated chairs.

I am not sure how comfortably you would sit in these, but they are most definitely fun to look at. See more of the artist amazingly inventive work here.

Implications - Today's free-spirited consumer calls for an element of imagination in all products, from furniture to apparel. Thus, artists like Kai Linke are conceptualizing and creating everyday items with inventive twists, providing consumers with the dose of whimsy and fantasy that they crave. This plays into a larger consumer urge for escape from reality.
